TOUR #1 SHEPHERD'S MANOR CREAMERY, SATURDAY, MARCH 10th
We hope you'll join us for our first ever behind the scenes tour of Shepherds Manor Creamery in Carroll County. Shepherds Manor is Maryland’s first (and only) sheep milking dairy farm, producing artisan sheep cheese in the beautiful countryside of Carroll County, Maryland.
Our host/owners Colleen and Michael Histon have graciously offered this rare opportunity to visit and experience a working sheep farm.
Hors d’oeuvres and wine will be served following the tour. It's about an hour from Olney. Enjoy a wonderful tour in the rolling hills of New Windsor; then hot and cold hors d'oeuvres, wine and dessert on the owners' veranda. You'll also see their amazing historic house.
Help support Friends of the Olney Farmers Market by making a $50. donation. All proceeds go to helping our neediest customers.
Tickets on Eventbrite and also available at the Market next Sunday (March 4) from 9 to 1. Or just send your check payable to Friends of the Olney Farmers Market, PO Box 1787, Olney, MD 20830. We are a 501(c)(3) organization.
